NatureGraphy’s Spotlight Photo goes to Ron Conigliarofor this shocking photo of angry looking wild Leopard.
another in my series of, “how they look when they are angry at you” this leopard was giving me a warning to stay put (which i gladly did). immediately after this, the leopard came to the jeep and rubbed it’s body on the rear tire of the jeep. at one point, i could have reached down and touched it – my guides words, “keep cool” seemed a bit overstating the obvious. a thrilling moment… btw, this shot is sepia because you cannot light a predator and give away it’s position to prey. special lights are used with a green filter. because of the green cast on the shot, i decided to use this effect.
